Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

Third Cousin, Once Removed

It's so much fun meeting relatives you didn't know you had. In this instance, it is on my mom's father's side - The Simmets as opposed to our Zimmeths. Gale found me through postings I had done on Find-A-Grave, while he was searching for information on his Simmets. Because of the name change by his branch of the family, he had some difficulty tracing his line back.

I knew about the Simmets in Michigan, his branch at any case, because I found them accidentally while searching census records. We shared a good day together and wow did I scan some stuff! Lots of stuff.
